This is a mid-weight, well constructed wine with good acidity and tannin, but the aromas of confected mocha and clove...

This light to medium bodied Garnacha has fruity to integrated aromas of cherry, prune and pine. It is a bit closed upon opening and I highly recommend decanting for 1 hour. Once opened, the body will shift from light to medium and the pine notes appear. Tannins are subtle and the finish is medium. I feel that this wine should age at least couple of years for it to open up. My impression: just barely NICE. Tasted Apr/10.
